Cloud computing has garnered an immense amount of attention of late, it is increasingly also being used for mobile computing. Cloud computing can also be confused for web hosting, however they both have different technologies.

What is cloud computing?. Cloud computing helps us in accessing software, data services and storage services without investing in IT infrastructure or software over the medium of the internet.Involving third party hosting these in large servers. Cloud computing solutions are being used by topo notch companies like Amazon, Yahoo,Google and Microsoft.

This is of three types software as service(SaaS, platform for service (PaaS) for developers and Infrastructure as a service(IaaS). Cloud computing seems to have remarkable effects on information technology.It offers to bring down the costs which are otherwise spent on manpower or infrastructure.Offering easy expansion it gives you the flexibility of using more resources if you are expanding your business.It has gained its brownie points in being environmental friendly.

It would be unfair to call this technology as the answer to Information technology issues. It's security as well as privacy is questionable.

Android Market for Smartphones Redesigned by Google

It has not been really long since Google came out with a whole new Android Market website and now its all set to unveil a renovated storefront client for Android smartphones, with the aim of offering more user-friendly way to application discovery. Google is hopeful that the new Android Market client displays top apps and games in a more effective manner, as it boasts an enhanced UI and more functional download and purchase processes. Apart from this, it also will let the developers to experience better ways to market and merchandise their apps.

Some of the innovative features of the new Android Market client are a new homescreen promotional page created to feature top content, instant access to apps and games. Moreover, the page also connects users to books and movies. Whats even more exciting is that the Apps and Games pages will now include Top Paid, Top Free, Top Grossing, Top New Paid, Top New Free and Trending lists. In order to offer a more appropriate consumer experience, Google will make each list country specific.

Android market now also boasts a brand new app details page, which make it possible to move the name and price into an action bar at the top. Furthermore, the users will now be able to go through screen shots, scroll down to read the description of the app, add more information, reviews and related data or click a thumbnail link to screen a product video that displays in fullscreen mode when the device is in landscape orientation.

A more streamlined click-to-purchase flow that allows two-click transactions from the app details page is presented by the new Android Market client, when users decide to purchase an application. The Android Market also works to enhance cross-sell opportunities by presenting a list of other apps available from the same developer to the user , when he purchases an app.

Google Trying to Take Over FB with Google+

It wouldn't be wrong to say at all that Google has pulled up its socks to soar above its competitors. That's why it recently unwrapped its new updated look, apart from unveiling Plus One, the Plus social network and the recent PageRank update. Speculations are strong that Google is planning to unveil a social network via Google+. It is unsure whether this strategy of Google will work or not.

One thing is absolutely clear that Google is aiming at taking over the popularity of Face book and become the big social players themselves. Though Google refuses to admit it, but insiders have said that the project is even called “Googbook” internally.

Before Facebook had taken over, it was Google's Orkut which used to triumph its music on web. But Google has pretty much information regarding the visitors on orkut, who can now acquire their own social opinions called +1 which helps quality websites climb up the pages. But practically seeing, it should not act as a hurdle for highly successful Facebook. Though Google+ has got an excellent response from everywhere, at the end of the day, its about an individual's own choice. Those who are addicted to FB will still remain its fan.

Also it would be hard for anyone to give up over 500 friends and 1000 tagged pics just to switch over to some other social site, even if benefits are larger. However, lets not conclude that Google+ wont have any following. One can have two accounts on different social networking sites. Apart from this, Google+ does offer quite a lot of attractive features like connections not requiring to be two-way, eradicating any clutter from people you don’t actually care about in your stream. Apart from this, it will be pretty amazing to watch how Google advertises with the aim of showing Facebook stars in daytime. But there still lies a possibility that once the initial excitement fades out, Facebook might prevail again.

Now let us give the comparison between Google and FB a backseat and rather talk about the innovative features of Google+. Overall, it's a very simple interface, notifications are great, interactions like hanging out voice chat etc are commendable. As of now, its on BETA, but it wouldn't be wrong to say that the version is much better than many other unveiled by Google in past.

Symantec calls Apple's iOS more secure than Google's Android

Recently, Symantic came out with its latest report, in which it ranked Apple's iOS as more secure in comparison to Google's Android. The report dubbed "A Window Into Mobile Device Security," includes 23 pages, in which the security approaches used by Apple and Google in its mobile operating systems are described. Apart from this, the report also emphasizes the past and possible future holes found in the iOS and Android platforms.

The report made close comparisons of both the platforms and reached on the conclusion that iOS offers full protection against malware attacks, while its counterpart offers only a little.

The report also ranked iOS higher than Android for protection against resource abuse and service attacks, data loss, and data integrity attacks. Moving further, even the fields like access control, application provenance, and encryption were found to be more securely protected by iOS.

Isolation was the only security category, in which Google's Android was termed as better than iOS. Android received highest marks for this category, while iOS was told to offer moderate protection.

On the whole, the report by Symantec credited the provenance approach of Apple for building a steady security barrier. This because all of the apps, before getting launched on the App store has to undergo vetting procedures. The report said that this avoids malware attacks, data loss attacks, data integrity attacks, and denial of service attacks.

While coming over to Android, Symantec pointed out two major weaknesses in it. The report said, “First, the provenance system in place enables attackers to anonymously create and distribute malware. In addition, its permission system relies upon the user to make the important security decisions, and considering most of Android users are not of high technical capability, this causes problems.”

But the report did term Google's mobile operating system as an enormous improvement over traditional desktop operating systems.

In-App add with Rich Format Leaves Memorable Impression on User's Mind.

A latest survey report released by Web measurement firm Compete, has specified that consumers tend to remember ads within apps for longer period as compared to the ones they see in the mobile Web. The survey found out that 52% of smartphone owners remember the in-app ads they have come across, compared to 40% who could recall ads which they encountered during surfing the mobile Web.

If we categorize the smartphones via their platforms, then 65% of iPhone users were able to recall in-app ads, as compared 33%, who could remember mobile browser ads. But, on the whole, it was seen that percentage of recalling was a little higher in users of Google's Android platform (55%), in comparison to iPhone users (51%). Meanwhile, only 22 pct of BlackBerry apps users could remember a few advertisements.

One of the reasons why in-apps are more remembered by the users might be because they display rich media formats, which simply lights up the screen. Moreover these ads appear at regular intervals, like when playing a game. Due to this, they tend to grab attention of the users more as compared to standard mobile Web display ads.
The study further revealed that the users least remembered ads coming via text messaging/ SMS, with 27% recall among iPhone and Android users.

In April, Google came out with its study results specifying that 82% of smartphone users notice mobile ads, especially display ads, and a third notice mobile search ads. These ads had positively effected many users; for instance, a mobile ad stimulated half of the users to take an action at some point, with 35% visiting a Web site and 49% making a purchase.
The survey report by Compete ranked the following app categories in the first quarter as the toppers to be downloaded.

1.Games (55%)

2.Weather (44%)

3.Social networking (39%,)

4.Entertainment (38%)

5.Maps/ navigation (36%)

In 2010, apps related to social networking moved up from the fifth to the third most-downloaded type of app
So, over all it wouldn't be wrong to conclude that the scope of Mobile App Development is on full boom for a next few years and so is the scope of the App Developers.

Approval for apps for iOS platform surpasses 500,000 mark

Yesterday was a big day for Apple as the number of individual apps passed for its iOS platform surpassed the 500,000 mark. However, if we look at the active apps available in the Apple Store, there might be approximately 40,000 of them, but the thing worth mentioning here is that the number of approved apps is a great thing in itself for developers and app seekers alike.

With the aim of celebrating this occasion and highlighting others since the Apple App Store launched on July 10, 2008, an infographic was yesterday unveiled by 148Apps, independent mobile app blog, along with Chomp, the leaders in app search technology, and Chillingo, a top app game developer. They have included top apps of all time, number of developers contributing to the 500,000 number, a timeline of approved apps, growth projections and more in this infographic.
Well, we have got a few amazing statistics for you from the infographic:

  1. Do you know, you will have to shell $891,982.24 and over 7 terabytes to get all available applications?

  2. While nearly 36% of all apps are free, paid apps have an average price of $3.64.

  3. The numero uno paid spot for the total 275 days has been held by Angry Birds released by Chillingo and developed by Rovio.

“The fact that it has taken less than three years to reach this number is remarkable. With the improved tools for developers and steady adoption of smartphone technology, I anticipate there is still a lot of runway,” expressed Jeff Scott, founder of 148Apps on this milestone.

Meanwhile, the Android Marketplace, which came into existence 8 months after the Apple App Store in March 2009, is considered to be the closest competitor to the iOS App Store. It contains nearly 294,000 apps and 3 billion app downloads.

Don't Let iPhone See You NAKED !!!

The iPhone 4 is a wonderful gadget developed under the supervision of Mr. Steve. It was announced on June 7, 2010 at the WWDC 2010 held at the Moscow center, San Francisco and was updated on 24 , 2010 in U.S, France, Japan. The iOS of iPhone 4 is similar to previous ipad and iPhone. It is known as touchscreen smartphone with features like A4 , Retina Display and Facetime.

Iphone and Facetime:- The iphone is built with two front cameras one on the front and other on the back to serve the facetime feature properly. The iPhone software developer has designed facetime feature in such a way that only a single tap can make you use this feature. If you want to start a video call with your friend just tap on its name and tap the face time button. It is awesome as it works in both portrait and landscape modes. Someone has rightly said that Rose has thorns too same is with facetime.

Issues regarding Facetime:- Many users are complaining against facetime . According to their complains they have seen some photos taken iPhone front facing camera, which they never clicked.

Some complains are as follows:- One of the girl stated in her report , "My boyfriend and I have both recently experienced this problem several times - when one of us is calling the other via FaceTime, an old picture freezes on our screen, while the person receiving the call only sees a black screen," wrote kar0786. "It's kind of creepy, because it brought up photos of both of us at work, where I have used FaceTime a few times but he never has.

We're just wondering how/why this is happening, and if there is a fix. It's not terribly inconvenient, but it's definitely unsettling, where is seems that even if we haven't taken a picture or used FaceTime, the camera is keeping images." Another wrote, "I have a dashboard mount for my phone. I had left the phone in the car when I ran in to get my sandwich. This was at a strip mall that I had never visited before and never connected to any WiFi. I parked in the middle of the lot, about 75ft from the doors to Subway. Ran it, got my food, hopped back in the car. I hit the button to see if anyone called me (no one did) and drove off. After I got in to where I was working and ate my sandwich, I tried to use FaceTime and saw a frozen image of me in the car from 20-30 minutes prior!"

So, lets be careful while accessing Facetime.

Android And Market.

Android is finally beating up iPhone and blackberry phones, in U.S market. After evaluating the statics of the Android sale chart we can say that 33% of the U.S citizens owns a smart-phone, Android is on first number in the race and Blackberry stands second with 28.9 % and on third is iPhone with 25.2 % sale rate. But still android needs a lot of work to do so, that it can gain the trust of the customers in the market.

- The biggest draw back of Android application development platform is the inability of smart-phone to stay current on software. So, Android developers should reduce fragmentation. As apple stressing on new software to increase its portability and ability with new operating system like apple the android should also be in touch with latest software as the latest phones are using a version of android that became updated four months ago. So, its a time for something new.

- Android is very well known for its open source platform as codes are all ready available and you can just go on its store and develop any application with the help of given codes. It is heard from one source that Google is now paying attention to the " Non fragmentation clauses " upon licensees. It is quite upset for that users who always want to see his handsets different from others. I really appreciate this but it is very much risky concept for Google because if the other OS proves more attractive to users like Window Phone 7 they will ultimately move towards it.

Apple TV is a blessing for an industry

Apple TV is a blessing for an industry trying to move the needle forward on sales

We all are quite familiar with Apple TV Programming. Apple TV allows consumers to use an HDTV set to view photos, play music and watch video that originates from limited Internet services or a local network. The first generation (white) had iTunes, Flickr, Mobileme/.Mac, and Youtube. The second generation added Netflix. Both models supported downloading/streaming podcasts. And soon we will be introduced to "Smart TV". Developers at Apple , Inc are apparently working on this device.

Basic features of Smart TV:- It is quite clear by the name that this device will surely include some combination of TV content. It will also include input from OTA/Cable cards. It will also include variety of TV apps and other apps like Facebook, twitter and web browser integration similar what we have see in Google TV. This device will be fully loaded with variety of games applications for all age and sex and it will also offer a combination remote and keyboard. It is likely ARM based running on the latest version of iOS involving Apple's dual core design. Munster previously remarked that “While Apple’s commitment to the living room remains a ‘hobby’ we continue to believe the company will enter the TV market with a full focus, as an all-in-one Apple television could move the needle when connected TVs proliferate”. It is under development stage so, it is hard to know what exactly Smart TV will be offering. It is likely that it will offer some sort of iPhone/ iPad/iPod Touch docking support. It will offer several streaming options and some other programming.

Twitter vs. Facebook.

Which is better for small business promotions?

Today, we cannot deny the fact that the internet has become the major source for all types of business. You can take the internet as one of the most effective marketing tool as almost all business whether big or small, are promoted through the internet.

Small business and facebook:- Facebook has already reached more than 500 million subscribers because of its Facebook application development platform which offers you variety of apps like games, photos sharing, status sharing, quiz apps and so on. Just imagine if only 2% of these subscribers would know about your business. This is definitely a lot that any marketing tool can offer today.

How to promote your small business via Facebook:- Firstly,you have to create a facebook account and than you are going to create a fan page and this fan page is going to be your business page where you can post all the info of your business like what services you are providing ,what is your exact location and you can post photos and videos related to business tours and share it with other facebook users. Other way of promotion is to offer discount and coupons to the people using the facebook page, as most of the people usually gets attracted to such offers. Even though if you offer your products at a discounted price, you can still make up for the sales as more people will patronize your product.

How to tweet your small business via Twitter:- Twitter lets instantly get the word out about your product, service, project or an idea. As the twitter is a promotional tool so, while accessing it you have to be more careful. First of all manage your Twitter account and use twitter search bar to see what people are looking for and talking about particular topics which you found interesting. And don't forget to reply on other people's tweet too. People with whom you actually converse are going to be your friends and will be most receptive to your business. Secondly, make sure that your tweets aren't perceived as ads. Your posts need to offer people something, whether it's information or entertainment. So, always keep in mind that the twitter is not a bulletin board you need to be there for participating in the conservation. If you follow all the rules than your business will be on the top.

Which is the better tool?

According to me facebook will serve you the best for promoting small businesses as you can share the videos, pictures , create events and invite others and also can participate in voting too. If owners are debating between Twitter and Facebook, they should first consider their audience.

Now a day such phones that run on android operating system is people's first choice. All the mobile brands are making android phones and are seeking attention of people. There are lots of reasons for high demand of Android phones because they are easily available in the market but Apple iPhone 5 are only available in the Apple stores.

Which deserves your hard-earned cash?

The popularity of mobile application development platform is catching fire. Every day we notice new features discovered by mobile developers. The two smartphone which are gaining popularity in the market are iPhone and Android. Both these handhold gadgets rollout with exciting new features and innovations with each release. As recently Apple has released iPad 2 in the market. We can evaluate iPhone and android devices from different and countless angles. So, here is the true review of both android and iPhone devices:-

iPhone is the winner in following phases:- The new users can easily use iPhone and understand its feature easily with less time. It has one main button at the bottom of the screen and everything you do consists of tapping app icons from the home screen. iPhone is packed up with good battery life than android phone. iPhone devices carries syncing in a better way than android .If you really use Outlook, Address book or iTunes than iPhone is the better and good option for you. iPhone also wins the trophy in the field of game and music from Android.

Android expertise in these areas:- Android is surely beating iPhone in several ways .Android phone is the invention of Google so if you rely on google tools than android is the better option to go. The biggest benefit of these phones is that you can customize the wallpaper which you like, no need of jailbreak software like iPhone. What we really like in android is that it is based on open source.

Which phone is a better option:- In the term of economic sale iPhone is ahead because it is an old platform and every year we are introduced with new iPhone version while android is just out a few months before. Apple's has vast numbers of stacked in its favor. It gets huge discounts on components, because it buys so many at once. It designed its own processors everything instead of purchasing from third party. And it sells iPads through its own retail and online stores, which gives it an even bigger chunk of the cash from each sale. So, you are smart enough to choose which gadget is good for you.

The Race Of Smartphones

Today phones had become everyone's necessity . It is most reliable communicating network with others through text, images, videos and voice. These two things which really makes it different from today's mobile platform from those of past mobile technology are as follows:-

Third Party Applications:- When the mobiles were first introduced no one was well aware of its use and applications only people use them to receive and make calls to one another. But now time has changed today people are well aware about this device and now people wants to mould this device according to their needs so, to fulfil all their needs there are plenty of apps available in mobile market.

Successful Media Library:- Today's smart-phone media capabilities often equal to those of laptop and even desktop PCs. This is due to iTunes library and invention of A5 chip.

Phones are becoming more dashing day by day:- As i am doing research on various mobile platform i found that iPhone is fully based on iOS, Android phones are using the latest version 2.2 of Google and Window Mobile are fully based on Java. Whatever the other mobiles expert reports says that android is first in the race but i object on this. No doubt it is gaining popularity but it is still lagging behind because iPhone programming has proved itself as there are 350,000 iPhone apps in the market while Android based phones has 150,000 apps .In short this indicate that which phone is more successful and best for you.

Apple's iPhone 4:- Apples each generation phone offers a greater number of features. The iphone 4 has great features like the highest resolution screen with its front and rear cameras enable video calls and conferencing. Face-time offers best while interacting with other users. But the two biggest attractions of the iPhone 4 are its immense number of apps and its robust media capabilities.

The Mobile Cloud and The World Of Mobile Technology.

The word cloud is stated as a metaphor to describe the broad scope of mobile technology services. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) provides a somewhat more objective and specific definition: "Cloud computing is a model for enabling convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction."The Mobile cloud service has open the field to a large number of mobile developers. The concept of creating apps for MC (Mobile cloud) is very different one as comparing the development procedure of apps for other mobile platforms like Android, iPhone ,Blackberry and so on.

The mobile applications and Web services:-

Some technical experts believes that in future all the mobile applications will be migrated to cloud rather than run directly from handset. So, for installing these applications we need good browsing speed mobiles so that we can access and execute them in less time and save our valuable time. Serval handsets are available in the market who are structured by keeping this cloud computing services concept in mind for example 4G mobile networks, like LTE and WiMAX, are fundamental for supporting large-scale mobile cloud deployment. The important thing that handheld devices must contain is HTML5 so that the user can experience and enjoy uninterrupted services levels.

Enabling mobile technologies

The mobile apps developers have not to spend to much money for submission process as few mobile solutions providers, such as appMobi have started offering integrated mobile browser that allows users to download and access apps directly from the websites.

But, still we need to cover this by expanding our knowledge.

The popularity of Android devices:- When any thing comes out with name and fame all tries to get it through good and bad means. Same is the case with Android application platform. As it is being popular so hackers are trying to take it and the cyber criminals are realizing that and acting and preparing themselves according to this. The popularity of android can become an inviting target for malicious hackers.

The existence of malware:- The concern about the android programming security issue is very sensitive one because malware is present over there. If the concept of malware not present in android than the google have being feeling safe but now they have to think and make their platform a secure one.

The security companies are observing:- As we all know that the android platform is open source one and there is always a chance for hacker to hack any programming while other brands like apple are regarded as secure one so every company is pointing on android platform

Source foe revenue potential:- We all adopt illegal methods to earn money and we choose only that platform which is finacially a stronger one and is collecting great earning in the market i.e economically strong.

Successful Facebook Applications Start from Successful Design.

Design is extremely important for Facebook application success. In order to provide good look and feel of your facebook app take the facebook developer should take into account the following points.

* Design should be an integral part of a general application concept and convey ideas and feelings behind it.

* Design should be user-friendly, intuitive, and of playing style to some extent, because Facebook apps are entertaining by their nature. That extent depends on your application niche.

* Design should be social-networking and viral - and give a user a supporting environment to socialize with other users. Does your design encourage people to communicate and make invitations? Does your design help people to express themselves and show them in a favorable light among their friends? Will users say each other "Wow, just take a look at that app!"?

* Design may impose certain restrictions on a Facebook application and, therefore, cause problems when programming the app and afterwards when adding new functional features. As a result, a Facebook application design should be flexible and simple enough to be able to reflect that constant Facebook growth we've discussed above.

* Also remember that potential users are spoilt by numerous already existing applications competing for their attention. So, analyze your competition to understand what and why is popular and how it can be overcome.

Java is a modern object oriented programming language

The Java language was designed from scratch. Its architects didn't need to worry about compatibility with previous languages and so were able to give Java a clean and consistent syntax. This makes the language comparatively easy to learn and enjoyable to program in. It also helps in writing reliable applications. If you're a professional programmer or software engineer, or considering becoming one, then being competent in Java will certainly do your career and bank balance no harm. Java is used in business, education, engineering and the sciences, actually its used pretty well everywhere computers are used.

Java was designed to be portable:- Most Java programs will run with little or no modification on many different operating systems and or hardware platforms.

Java is a network-centric language:- Java was designed to work well in networked environments, its API and security model make network programming safe and reliable.

Java is secure:- Java is secure, it allows code from the net to be run in an isolated environment, protecting the host system from viruses etc. In addition the Java API provides routines for dealing with digital certificates and other cryptographic techniques.

Java is a classic language:- Java can reasonably be called a classic language. More recent arrivals, such as C#, owe a lot to Java. This trend will probably continue. This means time spent learning Java will benefit you even after it becomes obsolete since its replacements will likely emulate much of its syntax and programming style.


Java Programming comes complete with a large well organised Application Programmers Interface (API). This allows the programmer to concentrate the specifics of a project without having to write more general code or to monkey about with third party libraries.

Use PHP Increases Site Speed.

E-commerce is the most complicated and competitive field. Minutest aspect of customer satisfaction is to be considered. Or else, customers may leave your website and shop from your competitor's website. Site speed is one factor that cannot be ignored in e-commerce website development.

A site that responds to the needs of the customers quickly creates pleased customers. Pleased customers not only buy from your e-commerce website once but also visit it again. The e-commerce website development services give importance to site speed without fail as visitors spend more time in such sites.

Hypertext Preprocessor (PHP) is a simple but widely accepted programming language for creating e-commerce websites. It enables dynamic page generation with syntax similar to C, Java and Perl. A big advantage with PHP is that nobody can steal your script. The PHP code is enclosed within special PHP tags in an HTML page.

When a visitor opens the page, the server processes the PHP code and sends the output to the visitor's browser, and not the code itself. It reduces the website loading time; thereby making the site faster. E-commerce website development is widely accepting PHP as a scripting language because of swiftness and other advantages.

Recently, Google included site speed as a determinant for search engine ranking. Google is encouraging site owners to evaluate their site speed. Under such circumstances, it becomes additionally important for e-commerce websites to check the site's speed. Inclusion of PHP may be done during e-commerce website development to achieve the desired results.

How social the Facebook have become??

Before Facebook Application development platform and all the internet stuff came (an era which only our grandpas must be aware of ) there used to be actual socialization. People used to meet each other, feel out to each other and talk face-to-face. However social the internet may have become, it just cant replicate the human touch. Today I guess the situation is pretty bad. For until and unless you get a virtual poke you hardly remember anybody. You add tons of ' friends' (it has become something like a Facebook score-the no of friends you have) but you hardly know anyone of them well. Or even the ones you thought you did, you are not sure about them anymore.

Facebook and life:- Whatever its demerits maybe (like anyone was bothered about it ) Facebook is here to stay. If you use the internet you use Facebook. It has become the rule of the thumb. If you don't have an account you are bound to be termed uncool. If Facebook was a country, then by population it would be the third largest in the world. Some 500 million plus users and growing. For everyone, old and young both are joining it. Among them are parents and they for one have a very genuine reason in joining it. For how else can they be friends with their children, know what their children 'like' and know what they think and feel?

Pros Of Facebook:- We can share what we are thinking, what we like, what we are doing and what we will be doing. All this with the people who matter in our life and unfortunately those with whom we seldom find time to interact. Such is our hectic life that Facebook offers a safe heaven, a gateway to that lost and ignored social life. Anyway its cumbersome to check on each of our friend's life so it's a relief to get their updates and that too in their own words. Facebook does offer what it says, it helps you connect with the people in your life.

Benefits of using social networks:- Social Branding Branding, Social Networks are becoming popular amongst various age demographics and can be used to create interception points for building your relationship with your consumers and prospects.
Customer Engagement Using social networks like Facebook , applications can be a great way for communicating promotions, contest and events with your customers.
Drive Web Traffic, Facebook Application Development can act as a portal point for driving traffic to your site and other online properties.
Lead Generation, Reviewing potential prospects' profiles may help you build a relationship with your prospects and aid in the lead generation qualifying process with the help of social networks

With the amount of existing and new facebook applications that are being created on social networks, business owners have an opportunity to use social networks to promote their brand even further.

The Verizon iPhone 5 alone will present a formidable challenge.

As Apple prepares to finally launch its iPhone on Verizon’s store shelves Feb. 10.But just the Verizon iPhone 5 alone will present a formidable challenge, and by all measures, it will easily beat any Android handset it’s up against.

Here’s why: The iPhone will increase Verizon’s influence.

Verizon in no way prefers one platform over another, unless one of those platforms offers more revenue potential. Going forward, it’s quite possible that the current-generation Verizon iPhone will usher in many more customers to the carrier’s network, and effectively put it ahead of AT&T and all other competitors in the United States. If that happens, Verizon will have no choice but to give preferential treatment to Apple. It’s quite possible that the next version of the iPhone on Verizon’s network will capitalize on that treatment.

The forgotten platform?

At the same time, the iPhone's and iphone feature success could have a negative impact on Android. Prior to the iPhone’s arrival, Android was the go-to platform on Verizon’s network, and companies like Motorola and HTC were capitalizing on this situation. But if Verizon sees more revenue potential with the iPhone than with Android—which seems quite likely—and pushes the iPhone to the top of its marketing strategy, Android handset sales could drop off. As a result, Android devices will have an even harder time competing with the iPhone 5 across the smartphone market.

The 4G possibility: One of the key factors in the Verizon iPhone 5 will be 4G. Currently, Verizon has the potential to reach more than 100 million people with its 4G network. It expects to bring it to even more customers through the end of 2011. Most reports suggest Apple will capitalize on that and bring 4G connectivity to the next Verizon iPhone. If that happens, currently scheduled Android 4G handsets won’t have that advantage. The onus will be on those handset makers to find another way to appeal to customers. That might be more difficult than some think.

If the current iPhone software programming is so appealing to customers, how many more will jump at the chance to buy an iPhone with the many features Apple will likely be making available in the next iteration of its smartphone?

How To Build a Sizzling Website?

Expanding your use of video, adapting to the growing use of smartphones and using your website to become an expert in your field are just some of the tasks you’ll need to tackle this year if you want to keep on top of the competition online. Think your website is ready for 2011? Think again. Just as you’ve mastered the latest web trends, suddenly major changes in SEO, web design and eCommerce appear from nowhere - and your business had better be prepared.

Here are the big web trends you need to address in 2011.

Add Something New: Physical retailers practically fall over each other trying to stand out among the crowd, offering extras like discounts, gift-wrapping and other promotions. “The more creative you can be, the better. I know of a clothing company that puts in handwritten notes into all of their products, thanking the customers. That’s a great example of what you can do when you’re a small retailer.”This is the type of stuff you can do when you’re a small company, and you have the chance to do it. Make yourself stand out and keep those customers coming back.

Make it Pretty: One of the biggest problems a new online shopper may have with the digital process is that they can’t touch and feel the product they’re buying. In order to eliminate that fear, you need to make the experience as visual as possible for them.

Content, Become an expert: Your website shouldn’t just be a place for customers to grab a phone number or send you an email. These experts say in order to distinguish yourself from the crowd, you need to be setting up yourself as an expert in the field – and the perfect way to do this is through a blog.“Plenty of businesses and simply people in general are either adding a blog to their site, or using a blog to communicate with their audience. And while blogs are not new, they are on the increase.”

Connect Your Customers: Social media is nothing new and we all recognize that businesses without Facebook and Twitter pages risk being left behind. But now comes the next step – connecting all your social media links together and plugging them whenever possible. All of your pages need to link to social mediate sites, and vice versa.“Interconnection with social media is the big thing now, you really need to be looking at having your Facebook page, Twitter and other sites all linked together. You need to make these sites are not just the place users go to buy something, but be sure they can get to other places as well.”

Keep it Social (SEO): Talk to any SEO webmaster and they’ll usually say that creating plenty of links is a great way to get your site noticed in Google. The more links, or “doorways”, into your site, the more opportunities people have to visit it.“This occurred in 2010 and there’s going to be much, much more of it in 2011. The social world is bigger, and it’s something that Google wants to do well. Now is the time to do social, and do social well.”

Don’t forget Google: Sometimes improving your website means going back to basics. “The big thing businesses need to be looking at is using Google Webmaster Tools to get analytical data. Many use just analytics, but they don’t use webmaster tools to find out what Google is doing with their site.”

Think Android!! Think App!!! Think Globally!!!

Google is the mother of The Google Chrome and Android operating systems. Android is built for touch, while Chrome OS is meant to be used with a keyboard and pointer.The Google Chrome and Android operating systems are Google's two newly developed systems that they're working on. Google OS is mainly based on the Google Chrome browser that runs internet applications. It is designed to be a really simple, user-friendly computer operating system that can be used on numerous devices. Now you ask,, where will the platform actually fit in?

Some say that Google is on a diehard mission to take over the world. They already have a world-dominating search engine, PPC program, Android OS, Google maps with an eerily accurate portrayal of everyone's neighborhood, and much more! What other Google features can you think of off the top of your head?

What operating system will ultimately come out on top? Android or iOS? If Android can manage to tackle Apple and the touch screen tablet market, will it stop there? Knowing Google, probably not. Since 1998, Google has been effectively taking control of the web. Android started on phones and is now being used for tablets. Where will we find Android next?

In my opinion, I think we're going to find it just about everywhere. From the next generation of kitchen appliances to WiFi connected cars.
